Here are the salient features of these plugins.

So let’s get started.

GTranslate:

GTranslate is the best multilingual plugin, it could be used to translate any HTML website & make it multilingual. It will help websites to increase international traffic, increase reach global audience & explore very new markets currently it has more than 7M+ of downloads and more than 300K+ active websites. It also offers a 15-day risk-free trial.

Here are some features of this plugin.

  • Search Engine Friendly
  • Machine Translation

The Free version of GTranslate uses statistical machine translations. In paid versions, they use Google neural translations which is very accurate when translating to & from the English language. Human translators generally rank at 8.5 & new neural machine translations hit 8.3.

TranslatePress:

TranslatePress is one of the good WordPress translation plugins in the plugin market. It is a bit different than other solutions mentioned here.

Normally, multilingual plugins ask to create multiple versions of the same blog/article in order to translate it. TranslatePress allows you to create translations at the same time.

It also allows us to use a live editor to translate all the visual aspects of your website one by one.

Here is the List of features listed by them.

  • Translate the entire page
  • Translation Blocks
  • Image Translation
  • Automatic Translation
  • Customizable Language Switcher
  • WooCommerce Support
  • Browse As
  • The support that gets things solved!

WPML:

WPML  (WordPress Multi-lingual) is one of the oldest and most popular WordPress multilingual plugins with a huge customer base.

WPML also allows us to use a live editor to translate all the visual aspects of the WordPress website one by one.

WPML allows us to automatically add a language switcher as a sidebar widget, in the navigation menu, a plain list, or even in the footer area. WPML makes it easy to translate every area of your website into multiple languages you want.

WPML also provides a better way to manage users who work as translators on your WordPress website. If you purchase their Multilingual CMS Plan, then you would be able to use their translation management module.

Here is the List of features listed by them.

  • Powerful Translation Management
  • Multilingual E-Commerce
  • Translation for Theme and Plugin Texts
  • Affordable Professional Translation
  • Works with Most WordPress Themes
  • Reliable Support and Proactive Development

I like GTranslate the most as it could be used as a free version but without the multiple URL (URL with language subdirectory) and has good results not accurate but still good results to work with.
